Dragon Quest faithful have been fortunate to play the majority of the main entries of the Dragon Quest series, but two entries eluded release in North America for quite some time. Those two were Dragon Quest V and Dragon Quest VI. In early 2009, Nintendo decided to publish Dragon Quest V in North America on the Nintendo DS and the title performed very well. Finally, the Dragon Quest chronology is complete in North America. It may have taken fifteen years for this momentous occasion to come to fruition, but Dragon Quest VI has finally seen release outside of Japan and it has proved to be worth the wait.
